ideal all-in-one all country adapter – Universal Travel Power Adapter with Surge Protection Reviews

posted by monno on 01/29/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
1. Good construction
2. Does everything the advertising says it does
3. Almost foolproof (see cons)
Cons:
1. No instructions (for example; when plugging in a US style plug [parallel prongs]to this device and plugging this device to an Australian wall socket, you are not sure of the polarity)This plug can be used upside down.
2. Because of this some devices which do not have the capability of reverse polarity may be damaged (because US prongs are parallel) BE CAREFUL
Other:
1. Be careful of the prongs. They pop out at a very fast and quite strongly springed pace.
Bottomline:
I'd buy another one if I needed it.
It works.
This is a very useful device for the traveller or if you are buying universal power devices from another country.
